Nice looking guns. In two weeks I'll be proud owner of a Heym...been working on it for 10 months. Then my Searcy in 470. Why I want a .470 when I'll already have a 450/400 I don't know. Oh well. Like someone said earlier. The only cure is death LOL.

Why not I really want a 450-400 to. Or a 500-416 that will be my next double I like the low recoil of the 450-400 and I think it is a great buffalo round

its good to see more people are suffering from the double affliction.. medical term "expensivus doubleitis"......and as is known by certain specialists it is incurable....:demented:

anyway nice to see the photos of your doubles every one. i think when i have finished payments on my .470 lang there might be a .450 making my acquaintance, probably a VC as somehow a card with guillame verney-carrons name and all my measurements on it appeared in my pocket in vegas last year. :confusion: :laughing::beer:

Moved to Alaska in 1984 adn never looked back.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
